A Brooklyn nanny accused of stealing more than $ 30,000 from actress Mary-Louise Parker is working with prosecutors to pay the money back, authorities said Monday.
Amanda Hoston-St. Louis was busted in June after she allegedly made two large cash withdrawals using Parker’s bank card PIN.
Hoston-St. Louis, 33, had a brief court appearance Monday in Brooklyn Supreme Court, where prosecutors told Justice Marguerite Dougherty they’re working on a plea deal that would include restitution payments.
If convicted, the nanny would face up to seven years in prison for the top charge of third-degree grand larceny.

Hoston-St. Louis was hired by Parker, the star of Showtime’s hit series “Weeds,” and was supposed to use the funds to go shopping for Parker’s children.
Since April, Hoston-St. Louis withdrew thousands of dollars from ATMs at CVS pharmacies for herself, according to the criminal complaint.
Parker’s bank alerted police when they noticed suspicious activity, sources said.
Parker’s publicist did not return a request for comment regarding the nanny’s employment status.
